Colorado’s largest electric utility, Xcel Energy, has a plan to dramatically shift the way we produce energy by increasing the amount of renewable energy produced right here in the Centennial State. Doing so would deliver substantial economic and environmental benefits to Colorado residents in the form of new jobs, increased revenue for communities, and lower utility bills for both businesses and consumers.

Late last summer, and with great fanfare, Xcel Energy announced its proposal to close the Comanche I & II power units in Pueblo a decade ahead of schedule. They offered as replacement the euphemistically titled “Colorado Energy Plan” (CEP), a massive $2.5 billion fuel-switching scheme to move its Colorado customers away from baseload, reliable hydrocarbons in favor of intermittent renewables, predominantly industrial wind.

Colorado's 2nd Congressional District Democratic U.S. Rep. Jared Polis is attempting to pull the rug out from under hardworking Coloradans by repealing the recent federal tax reform. His "Students Over Special Interests Act" supposedly would use the money from the tax cut to cancel federal student loan debt. Yet, it would raise Coloradans’ federal taxes and slash Colorado’s state budget revenue. That's because the tax reform could add as much as $300 million to Colorado's state budget, according to the Colorado Fiscal Institute.

Thanks to a decision on April 11 from state electricity regulators, Xcel Energy now has stronger energy efficiency goals that will save Coloradans roughly $165 million between 2019 and 2023 while also lowering pollution from coal and gas plants. The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) directed Xcel, Colorado’s largest electric utility, to raise their energy efficiency ambitions after hearing expert testimony from Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council, the Colorado Renewable Energy Society, and the Colorado Energy Office.
